Your Gratitude Attitude


Gratitude – the simple act of appreciating something or someone….. Even though gratitude is a simple tool its impact on our lives is extremely powerful.


What we focus on determines our mindset – so how would your life shift if you focused more on what you are grateful for rather than what is going wrong?


Through consistent gratitude practice you are re-wiring your brain actually to look for things to be grateful for.


Studies show practicing gratitude consistently helps you feel:

  • Happier and more joyful

  • Less depressed

  • Less stressed

  • Increased energy

When times are difficult gratitude can be a challenge however practicing gratitude does not diminish what you are experiencing but it does provide some hope and there is always something small that you can be grateful for.


I hope by now I’ve convinced you that adopting a gratitude practice will help you be in a better mindset. So here are some easy ways to incorporate gratitude in your life:

  • Keep a daily gratitude journal and write 3 things that you are grateful for –the key is to make it easy like a good parking space that you found, a pleasant employee at a store you frequented, a conversation you had with a friend

  • Thank someone for something they did – no matter how small the act

  • Practice small acts of kindness

  • Send a text, make a call, write a note to someone and tell them how much you appreciate them


What are your favorite gratitude practices – and remember simplicity is key!
